 About RF Cafe Copyright: 1996 - 2024Webmaster:    Kirt Blattenberger,     BSEE - KB3UON RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

# Mechanical Units of Measure - Metric & English

Here is a collection of some of the most often used mechanical units. Both SI (metric) and SAE (English) units are given.

There are two fundamental types of units: base units and derived units. Base units include meter, foot, kilogram, second, etc. Derived units involve a combination of base units, such as square meter, kilometer/second, etc.
